Jon and I were married in 1988. We spent our honeymoon in nearby Chimney Rock. We reside in Kernersvile, NC where we were both born and raised. We are parents to 3 wonderful children; Owen, Hannah and Molly. Jon has been employed with Tyco Electronics since 1994. He is a drummer and has played with several bands over the years. He now enjoys playing in our Praise and worship band at church. I have spent most of our married life as an at-home mom. I have been blessed to provide child care for some precious children who have touched my life deeply. I have taught pre-school, worked as a substitute teacher in our local schools and worked full time with special needs children where God taught me things I would never have learned otherwise. I am planning my first international mission trip in the summer of 2012. I will accompany a small group from my local church to Malawi, Africa where we will work with orphans, widows, and special needs children. We have been greatly blessed and look forward to the oportunity to share our blessings with you.

Sherri Smith purchased this cottage in 2011

We had always vacationed at Ocean Isle Beach. Because Jon loves the mountains so much I decided to try something different the summer of 2011. I began to search online for places in the mountains that still provided swimming and sunbathing opportunities. While browsing on VRBO one day I came across a house in Bat Cave. I booked it for a long weekend and we were hooked! We booked a second visit and it was during that visit that we discovered the little house for sale. We fell in love with it and purchased it several months later. We love the fact that there is so much to do in the area. Our daughter loves to visit the nearby wolf sanctuary/rescue. There is swimming, horseback riding, kayaking,hiking,rock climbing, repelling, ziplining, shopping, and so much more.

We love the quiet, peaceful surroundings. The colors of fall are spectacular! Spring is beautiful and full of color. The wildlife is abundant. We leave all our cares at home!

GREAT GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for relaxation in the mountains and we definitely found it here! Modern, clean, well-equipped facility with easy access to Asheville and Hendersonville, but remote enough to truly be a getaway retreat. Great mountain attractions(Chimney Rock, Lake Lure, Black Mountain, etc) are nearby. Great property for privacy or for family/friends gathering. Owners dropped by to be sure we had everything we needed...very nice folks. We will definitely use this property again!

THE BEST GET AWAY I'VE HAD IN YEARS

The best get away I've had in years
  • 5 of 5
My wife and I and another couple rented the this cottage for a long weekend in January of this year, I cannot stress enough how great the property was and how accommodating the owners were to work with. The cottage was very well kept, the hot tub was amazing and the view and sound of the creek in the back yard is indescribable. I can speak for all of us that weekend it was the most relaxing weekend we all have had in several years and we look forward to renting this cottage in the up coming summer.

WELL LOCATED FOR RUMBLING BALD AND CHIMNEY ROCK

  • 5 of 5
This was a great cabin and I'd stay here again. It was conveniently close to Chimney Rock and Rumbling Bald, super clean, comfortable furniture, and a nicely appointed kitchen. We also enjoyed the hot tub. Being able to have our Brittany Spaniel with us was an added bonus!

BAT CAVE GETAWAY

  • 4 of 5
We loved being able to hop in the car and escape for a few days. Space is very cozy - really sleeps 4 with 2 spots on loft for kids. Loved the hot tub and would come back. The stove top was a little hard to work with but other than that we loved the space

SMALL, BUT COZY ON THE CREEK

  • 5 of 5
We love Bat Cave area because it is quiet and near to so many other attractions. We enjoyed being right on the river and the large deck with the hot tub and sitting area was a real peaceful oasis morning and evening. The only down side is that the cabin is situated directly on the main highway, so you do hear that traffic noise often. I don't think the photos show this view, so we were surprised to see that. The cabin was incredibly well stocked, and you're asked to replace any thing you use up. Other than no soap or extra toilet paper, you can stay there for a few days and not have to run to the store as soon as you arrive. Good place for families or just 2 couples.

Owner's Response: Love to hear that people enjoy their stay at the house. Just to clear up a couple of things: I'm not sure why these folks felt they needed to replace what they used. This is our home-away-from-home and we are here often. I do leave kitchen staples that won't spoil for others to use. There is a white board on the fridge that says, 'Help yourself to anything you may need. If you use the last of anything please list it here so I know to get more." I've never asked anyone to replace items. I suppose they must have misunderstood. As for the toilet tissue; the bathrooms are small with very little storage. There was a case of toilet tissue in the closet in the master bedroom. There is liquid soap on the vanities in each bathroom and by the kitchen sink. I don't supply personal hygiene products (except for the basket in the main bathroom where I try to leave some emergency items such as toothbrushes, small toothpaste, a couple of feminine hygiene products, small shampoo/conditioner) in the event that people forget something. We do love the area also. Unfortunately, if you are going to have the river at the back door in Bat Cave, you must be near the road; as the road runs along the river. The road, however is a two lane mountain road and we think having the river is well worth it!
